Taliban kill seven ‘US spies’ in North Waziristan

By Dawn Correspondent || Sunday, 24 Jan, 2010 ||Safar 09, 1431

MIRAMSHAH, Jan 24: Taliban have shot dead seven people in North Waziristan after accusing them of being US spies.

Officials said here on Sunday that five of the people killed were Afghans. They said that five bullet-riddled bodies were found in Kam Sarobi village of Dosali tehsil. The militants had killed them on Saturday night and thrown the bodies on the road.

“A note found near the bodies said that they were spying for the United States and warned that all traitors would meet the same fate,” said a resident of Kam Sarobi. The note said that more ‘US spies’ were ‘in custody’ and they would be treated under what they call their Sharia.

Three of the five were identified as Gul Khallel Jan, Habibur Rehman and Mashkor Machikhel. The names of the Afghans who were from Khost and Kandahar could not be ascertained.

Taliban killed more than 20 local people and Afghan nationals on similar charges in North Waziristan last year. Militants say these people were hired by Americans in Afghanistan to gather information about Taliban activities.

The sources said two other bodies had been found in Qutabkhel area and the other in Mirali Bazar. Taliban have warned residents not to bury their bodies.

Militants fired five rockets at Tochi Scouts fort in Miramshah on Saturday night, but no casualty was reported.

Meanwhile, security forces arrested 70 suspects, some of them Afghan nationals, during an operation in Maches area. The operation was launched on Friday.

Officials said that those found innocent would be released after completion of interrogation. They said that Afghan nationals were living in an old refugee camp illegally and they might be deported to their country.

    The 6th century ideology and mind set of Islam need modernization . This
    modernizations or correction have to done within and lead by the modern
    thinker, No body from outside can do it but only help. To defeat the
    anti-modernization forces, we all should join hand. This war should not
    label as Islam Vs Islam rather Modernization against Old Ideology.

    Dear Friends,
    Reforming Islam depends on the followers of Islam. Nothing can be imposed from outside. There are considerable Muslims turned apostates. There are many advocates for reform and modernisation of the basic tenets of Islam.
    But the Maulvis, Mullhas and staunch Wahhabis and Salafis and even the
    predominant Hanafi Islamists in the South Asia are not agreeable. Major
    organizations like Deoband, Barelvi, Firamgi Mahall, Nadwatul and similar
    organisations must come together and decide on de-Arabazation of the South Asian Islam. Please remember that Deoband is at par with Al Azhar. I can only appeal to my Muslim friends to consider that Time travels on its arrow.
    It is not moored in bygone eons, Modernisation is the mantra of survival of the fittest. Let this lesson be learnt by our Muslim brethren and let them understand that their backwardness is greatly due to their blind bondage to certain eon old religious and social tenets.

    Regards.

      How does this “let them understand” attitude prevent ME, that is a
      non-Muslim, from being killed? What is needed is a giant groundswell of
      public opinion against Wahhabi Islam in Muslim-minority countries like
      India. Unfortunately, the pseudo-secular parties, in their greed for Muslim
      votes are encouraging Muslims to listen to the Mullahs, so that they can
      manipulate the Mullahs. We have to speak publicly against this. Only such a
      groundswell can force a change on them. Left to themselves, fired with
      Wahhabi-Saudi oil money, they will never change.

    Dear Friends,
    There are considerable Muslims turned apostates.

    But these apostates have no power. And in fact many a times their life is in danger.

    For my correspondence with Muslims, they believe their religion is one and only right one. They know the truth and we don’t know, according to them.

    So there is zero, zilch chance of changing their mind to be inclusive of
    other religions, gods beliefs.
